There’s a reason we recommend meeting women online instead of in bars. Well, there are lots of reasons, chief among them being that women on dating sites are way more receptive to the idea of going home with you than women in a bar will be. One of the other important reasons is that when men hang out in bars (us included), we tend to take advantage of them – to our own downfall. Whether you’re hanging around in a bar looking for women, or whether you’re meeting a woman for drinks before heading up to a hotel room, you’re better off hitting the booze lightly if at all. Here’s why:
She’s More Likely to Go Home With You
Women aren’t all the same, and they don’t have all of the same opinions. However, one constant is that most women are much less likely to go home with a guy who’s sloshed out of his mind. They want a man that seems like he can take care of them. They don’t want a guy who’s already falling down drunk before they get out of the bar. Have a drink to steady your nerves if you need it, but that should be all. The women who will go home with a guy who’s three sheets to the wind are not the kind of women you want to be going home with in the first place.
The Sex Will Be Better
One thing about alcohol is that it distorts your perception of memory. In other words, you’re likely to remember things differently from how they actually happened. One of the biggest reasons this is awful is because being drunk makes you less likely to have good sex. You can argue against that for yourself personally all you want, but statistically speaking, it’s unlikely. Alcohol functions as a nervous system depressant, which makes you less able to react to the things you feel, as well as almost certainly giving you some trouble getting (or keeping) it up, according to the Mayo Clinic (as if we needed to ask). Even if you remember having a great time while drunk, it’s a lot more likely that you’ll have an even better one while at least mostly sober.
Turn a One Night Stand into More
If you just want to see a woman once and never again, you should make it the best once that either of you has ever had. If you’re curious about maybe hooking up with this woman again, however, you’re definitely going to want to stay at least mostly sober. Women are obviously more likely to go out with a man again if the sex was good, and you’ll have a better chance of making sure everything was good if you’re not too sauced to function. Whether you’re meeting her at a bar before your date or you’re just hanging out there for fun, trying to turn a one night stand into something more is a great reason to avoid getting drunk when you’re first meeting a woman for some fun.
